Monthly Oncology Tumor Boards: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Individualized Patient Care - Prostate Cancer: Castrate Resistant

May 17, 2016

Join Andrew J. Armstrong, MD, ScM and Bridget Koontz, MD from Duke Cancer Institute as they present their expertise on a range of cases pertaining to castrate resistant prostate cancer (CRPC).

Prostate cancer has become the most commonly diagnosed non-skin cancer in men. Although androgen deprivation therapy is an effective first-line treatment for advanced disease, almost all cases eventually become resistant. Treatment of CRPC has entered a new era with the dramatic expansion in effective agents. With the wide range of treatment choices, careful patient selection is paramount to maximize benefit and avoid unnecessary side effects. Treatment decisions must be tailored individually depending on the presence or absence of symptoms, life expectancy, and overall health of the patient. With the plethora of new agents developed in recent years for CRPC, clinicians need to understand not only the selection criteria for each agent, but also optimal sequencing strategies to help patients navigate through the many options for initial and subsequent treatment.

Target Audience
